Top Ten Unique Book Titles
oh i love that topic! there are so many books out there, that have a unique book title in my opinion and i am happy to share my favorites with you! let me know your favorite titles in the comments. 🙂
“top ten unique book titles”
1.) “turtles all the way down” by john green
when i heard, that the book title for john green’s new book would be “turtles all the way down” i was so excited. this title is amazing! and i was looking forward to find out, what the meaning is behind it. and the way it was revealed was great. definitely a unique title!
2.) “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by mark haddon
i think i have never seen a title, that is so unique than this one! i can’t even remember it, i always have to look up, how to write it! 😀
3.) “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” by ken kesey
i swear, i am not doing a fall-cover theme list again. it just is coincidence. 😀 i really love the title “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” because for me it’s very unique and it was definitely the reason, why i was drawn to this book.
4.) “the perks of being a wallflower” by stephen chbosky
i always loved this title, because for me it stood out. the first time i heard it, i had to look up, what is meant by wallflower. and i was sold. i am so glad to have picked up this book, because not just the title is unique, the story is unique too! 🙂
5.) “extremly loud and incredibly close” by jonathan safran foer
again a title i love! i immediately picked up the book, because i wanted to know what’s behind that title. and i am so happy i did, because this book is fantastic!
6.) “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” by becky albertalli
i think both “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” and “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli are unique titles and definitely the reason, why i wanted to pick up the books.
7.) “autoboyography” by christina lauren
i think this title is perfect! “autoboyography” fits the story so very well that in the end i had goosebumps. it’s an amazing story, heart breaking and heart warming and just wonderful. and “autoboyography” as a title is simple, short, but totally on point.
8.) “aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe” by benjamin alire sáenz
i guess i love long titles in books. the same goes for “aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe”. the first time i heard it, i wanted to pick it up. it promises a book about revelation, about insight to the human life and it promises a great story between two people!! i am so excited to read this one! 🙂
9.) “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” by douglas adams
this one is easy. i love everything about galaxies, i love sci-fi. so of course i wanted someone to guide me through it. i love this title and this book is just hilarious!
10.) “we are the ants” by shaun david hutchinson
i love “we are the ants”. not just the book but also the title. it’s also simple but it definitely raises the question, why are we the ants? i wanted to know. i read it. i knew why. it’s a fantastic read and i think it deserves more hype. i don’t see this book around much!
these were my favorite unique titles! what about you? do you agree? do you disagree? why? let me know in the comments! 🙂
